What we do
What We Do

  • We develop graphical user interfaces that contrast multiple classifications


Matching by hand
Matching By Hand…

  • Matching taxa by hand is extremely difficult & time-consuming, even with small data sets


Matching by name
Matching by Name…

  • Our interfaces can automatically match between classifications by name


Matching by concept
Matching by Concept

  • Same names don’t mean the same things in different taxonomies… they are different concepts

    • Thus synonymy, homonymy etc

  • Taxonomic Concept Schema (TCS) includes mechanisms for defining relationships between concepts


Matching by concept1
Matching by Concept

  • To get this data in though requires an expert to assess and mark up the relationships in TCS


Matching by concept2
Matching by Concept

  • To get this data in though requires an expert to assess and mark up the relationships in TCS


Making concept relations
Making Concept Relations

  • So we developed a drag & drop interface to allow experts to build relationship sets between classifications

  • Takes in a TCS data file

  • User picks a pair of classifications

  • User chooses a relationship type

  • Drag between concepts to connect


Making concept relations1

Two Classifications

Viewing concept relationships
Viewing Concept Relationships

  • Relationships between two taxonomies can be viewed in the relationship creation tool

  • To view across multiple taxonomies simultaneously we adapted our multiple classification browser


Viewing concept relationships1
Viewing Concept Relationships

  • Takes in a TCS data file

  • Shows all classifications

  • User navigates or selects a concept

  • Hovering with the mouse reveals relationships

  • Marking (colouring) highlights those related concepts and also those related to its child concepts


Viewing concept relationships2
Viewing Concept Relationships

Related concepts

Concept relations

Concept under investigation



Conclusions
Conclusions

  • We can generate TCS relationships between classifications

  • We can show TCS relationships between classifications

  • The effectiveness of the tools with regard to these relationships is still unknown

    • We need your help!
